I wanted it to be longer!
This book is about all different kinds of stripes on animals. I liked it because the animals in the book are so pretty. I really liked the bird walking through the grass and the butterfly. My favorite part was the game where you get to match the stripes in the back of the book to the right animal. It was very fun. You can guess which animal it is and then check to see if you are right. It would have been better if it had more animals in it. I wanted it to be longer. Anyone who likes all different kinds of animals would like this book. This book would be good for children two years old to six years old.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is a beautiful melding of poetry, illustration and science. I find the text to be wonderfully lyrical and the imagery to be fancifulWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
and detailed. Stockdale also nails the factual accuracy of all her striped creatures. Check out the interactive pages at the end that expand
the learning opportunities for kids. A great book!

What animals have stripes? All types of animal and reptiles have stripes. The most familiar is probably the zebra and the skunk.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
In this book you will learn of many animals with stripes like a poisonous frog, a garter snake, an american badger, wild and domestic cats and more. You will learn why they have stripes, though some have stripes that can't be explained as to why they have them, at all. As you read along in the book the author in a singsong rhyme tells of the places these creatures exist here on our planet Earth.
In the back of the book are more details about these creatures and where they live. Then there is an activity titled "STRIPES?" that ask, "Can you find the animals that belong to these stripes?".
I found this to be a fun and entertaining book, a wonderful way to learn about these bold, beautiful and uniquely marked animals.
I highly recommend this book to children ages 4-6, parents, grandparents, educators, librarians and caregivers.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Peachtree Publisher for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. This is my honest opinion.
